Download Reelin Glycoprotein: Structure, Biology and Roles in Health by Cheng-Chiu Huang, Gabriella D’Arcangelo (auth.), S. Hossein PDF

By Cheng-Chiu Huang, Gabriella D’Arcangelo (auth.), S. Hossein Fatemi M.D., Ph.D. (eds.)

Reelin glycoprotein is an incredible secretory protein with vital roles in embryogenesis and through grownup lifestyles. Reelin gene mutations or deficiency of the protein product reason irregular cortical improvement and reelin signaling impairment in mind. because the first discovery of the reelin mutant mouse in 1951 via Falconer, and later discovery of the gene for reelin in 1995, there was an explosion of latest wisdom approximately this significant molecule. Reelin Glycoprotein: constitution, Biology and Roles in wellbeing and fitness and Disease, written through a world panel of specialists, summarizes the country of the information on quite a few features of reelin. themes comprise the reelin gene and its receptors, downstream effector molecules in reelin signaling cascade, chemistry and constitution of reelin, comparative anatomy of reelin, presence of reelin in a variety of physique tissues, reelin mutations, and abnormalities of reelin creation in neuropsychiatric problems and melanoma. This ebook will function a starting place for research of this rising novel protein for all neuroscientists and clinicians.
